About this title

Synopsis:

Peter's looking for the one perfect pumpkin. Come join the search and see what he does when he finds it!

Review:

"Peter's looking for a pumpkin, a perfect plumply, dumply pumpkin. Not a lumpy, bumpy pumpkin. Not a stumpy, grumpy pumpkin, but a sunny, sumptuous pumpkin." And given how gosh-darn cute Peter is--as gosh-darn cute as a young tiger can get, really--you'll instantly find yourself pulling for him as he goes out into the fields to get his gorgeous gourd.

But Peter's dramatic character arc doesn't really occur until he's got his perfect pumpkin in hand (or paw, rather): "Why does Peter want a pumpkin? Want a showy, glowy pumpkin?" Could it be for pumpkin pickles or pumpkin pie? Pumpkin pudding or pumpkin fry? Nope. He's soon drawing in eyes, and a chin, and "a plumply, dumply grin." Then with a little help from his dad (also quite cute, note the family resemblance), Peter proves that "perfect pumpkins really do make perfect jack-o'-lanterns, too."

Plumply Dumply Pumpkin is a fun, short Halloween romp from the happy pen of Mary Serfozo (Who Said Red?, What's What? A Guessing Game), ably aided by illustrator italiana Valeria Petrone (Ducks in Muck), whose bright, giddy brushstrokes propel Peter on his airy way. (Ages 3 to 6) --Paul Hughes
